D.C. man pleads guilty for string of pharmacy robberies, including an Alexandria location

On March 25, 2021, Floyd Neal and a co-conspirator robbed the Walgreens Pharmacy at 4515 Duke Street at gunpoint, stealing between $7,000 to $10,000 from a safe, according to an indictment.

Neal, a 32-year-old D.C. resident, pleaded guilty to the Alexandria robbery and a string of pharmacy robberies across Maryland and Virginia in 2021. Between Feb. 14 and April 1, Neal and other robbers hit four locations across Virginia and Maryland, from Henrico, Virginia to Beltsville, Maryland.

Neal pleaded guilty to three counts of interference with commerce by robbery and aiding and abetting. He also pleaded guilty to using, carrying and possessing a firearm during a drug trafficking offense, according to a release by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

According to the release:

On March 25, 2021, Neal and a co-conspirator traveled from the District to a pharmacy in Alexandria, Virginia. They entered the store wearing yellow construction vests and posed as customers by grabbing beer. Then the co-conspirator shouted “Give me all the money. Oh, you think I’m playing,” as he reached toward his waistband to indicate that he had a firearm. The men ordered two employees into the store’s office before taking between $7,000 to $10,000 from the safe. The men fled in a 2005 silver sedan.

Sentencing for Neal is scheduled for June 21 and he faces a maximum of life in prison for using a firearm during a drug trafficking offense, as well as 20 years in prison for each robbery.
